The Samtel Group was founded with a vision of building an institution which would achieve business excellence while contributing to nation building by caring for the society and environment. In its desire to play a significant role beyond the boundaries of its factories in the communities that reside around its plants, the Group founded the Samtel Achrumal Medical Aid Trust (SAMA) in 1988.
Through SAMA, Samtel has provided mobile medical vans with trained medical staff, which are dedicated to providing healthcare services to the communities around its plants in Ghaziabad, Kota and Parwanoo. SAMA has also held a number of medical camps on maternal and child health, immunization, blood donation and eye care in the last few years because of which many people have benefited.
In collaboration with I Care Hospital, NOIDA and Lion's Eye Hospital, Ghaziabad, the trust has been conducting eye camps for the detection and surgery of cataracts in patients. In these camps, patients are also given IOL implants free of cost. In addition to this, SAMA has also arranged First Aid Camps for Kavad Yatris since 2001.
Our work continues and we plan to focus our efforts further in the areas of maternal and child health as well as launch vocational training and income generation programs in the areas in which we operate in the coming days.
